Maintaining CPB Certification

Upon successfully passing the Tier 4 CPB
 exam, Certified Professional Bookkeepers are required to maintain our high standards through continuing professional education. CPBs must acquire 20 Continuing Education Credits (CECs) each year based on the anniversary date of the last CPB certification exam passed.

It is mandatory to record a journal entry for courses/classes that you attend, and upload documentation for the credits you are claiming, into your IPBC Member Profile - Professional Development. Should you be audited, you will need to prove the number of hours of CECs you are claiming each year. Credits may be earned through various options, including: college courses, seminars, webinars, conferences, and IPBC events. (list of CEC examples

If you are unsure if a course or activity qualifies for CE credits please submit a CEC Request Form to acc-cec@ipbc.ca
. You will receive an email within 20 business days with the CEC subcommittee assessment of the request.

Failure to meet the CEC requirement may result in the loss of your CPB certification.

The IPBC is dedicated to developing greater educational excellence,
career opportunities, and recognition for the bookkeeping profession across Canada.
